Welcome to TCF Info
Welcome to TCF Info where our aim is to offer mortgage brokers and intermediaries practical, user-friendly tools and information to help you embed best practice procedures in your business. The site includes information on the Mortgage Market Review (MMR), and how it is being implemented, training and competence and of course the principle of ‘treating customers fairly’ (TCF). This principle underpins mortgage regulation outlined in the MMR rules and is also the focus of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). In a booklet published in October 2012 "Journey to the FCA", they explained that in their approach to supervision they will "be looking for firms to base their business model, their culture, and how they run the business, on the foundation of fair treatment of customers as set out in the Treating Customers Fairly (TCF) initiative."
TCF Info was created in response to market research carried out amongst over 300 mortgage brokers and packagers into their understanding of TCF and principle based regulation. Two key concerns raised by our survey were:
These are precisely the types of information TCF Info aims to offer you, together with regular, helpful updates on The Mortgage Market Review. Through these updates and surveys we intend to give mortgage intermediaries the chance to ‘join the debate’ and affect the way the UK mortgage market develops.
The next survey, which will be on the MMR one month one, how it is impacting your business and how easy or difficult it is to get cases accepted now, will be open on the 27th May. The results of the survey will be given to lenders so that they are in touch with how you really feel and the challenges that you feel. To have your say, ‘join the debate’ now.
